FMF MAKITA SUZUKI'S STRANG AND SMITH WALK AWAY WITH TOP HONORS AT THE GENERAL

FMF Makita Suzuki\'s Josh Strang put his RM-Z450 on the top step of the XC1 Pro podium for the second time in Grand National Cross Country Series. Strang dominated the Maxxis General round of the 13 event series in Washington, Georgia.

Strang cruised to an easy victory crossing the finish line with a two-minute lead. Strang now has a 14-point advantage going into the third round on Mach 20 and 21 in Morgantown North Carolina.

Rodney Smith dominated the Sportsman A Class with the new nearly stock 2010 fuel injected RMX450Z. It was an exciting race with Rodney second at the first turn and an all out battle with Shawn Clark throughout the race swapping leads each lap. In the end, Rodney got the advantage and won by over three minutes and is currently number one in the point’s race.

The FMF Makita Suzuki team is happy with the way the 2010 season has started.
